Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed with my internship, sorority obligations, classes, homework, etc., I have to take some "me" time, even if it's only for 10 minutes. Here are my favorite ways to recharge:
One of my favorite things to do is go on a walk by myself. I'm a very social, extroverted person, but sometimes I just need a break where I can be alone and think. When I'm at home, I take my dog and walk around a lake near my house, and it's so refreshing. I feel like I have an hour to myself, completely separated from everyone in the world.
Some nights, I'll make myself a cup of Earl Grey tea in my Lilly mug while sitting in my bed and reflecting on the day. It's one of the only parts of the day that I have absolutely nothing to do or think about.
As you saw last week, I'm a HUGE fan of to-do lists. Crossing off something simple like packing my bag for the next day or throwing in a load of laundry makes me feel so accomplished.
I do a daily devotional at night and journal if I'm especially stressed. It's such a nice way to let out all of my worries, while also connecting with The Lord. I also love reading beach reads for a few minutes each night.
I don't have a TV in my room, but I love watching an episode of Revenge, Law and Order SVU, Hart of Dixie, or Gossip Girl on Netflix.
I hate unpainted nails, so I paint mine 1-2 times per week (usually the same color). It makes me feel pretty and makes me concentrate on something other than my to-do list.
How do you recharge? Have a wonderful day, y'all!
